The One-Lane Bridge Shared By Cars And Trains

No matter where you are, trains have the right of way. A train might take a mile or so to come to a stop, which means they cannot stop just because they see a car on the track.

That's the case for a couple of bridges in rural New Zealand, as Tom Scott explains.
